There are only two choices left. Pick one.

Sorry, but the choices you declare are left are both disasters in the making.

There are other choices, they may not win, but at least I won't sacrifice my soul voting for a lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal like Mitt Romney.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

My Mother always told me that by not making a choice, you are making a choice.

There are two choices left. That isn't an illusion, it is a reality. I don't like it, but it is what it is.

Do what you think is right my FRiend.

How amusing that you must quote a man whom most of your fellow travelers believe to be the essence of the Big Government proponents. A man that the vast majority of the far Right believe to be evil to his core. Needless to say, Hamilton was one of the greatest men this nation ever had and the greatest political philosopher the Western hemisphere ever produced so it is good to see him quoted even if the quote is not used as he intended. He would definitely oppose The Disaster at every chance.

I presume it is a quotation coming from the election of 1800 and explains his opposition to Aaron Burr rather than Jefferson, his mortal enemy. You will note that he did NOT refuse to make a choice knowing full well how much of a crook Burr was. Even the fact that Jefferson was only slightly less of one than Burr did not cause Hamilton to take your route.

But he knew that Burr was a potential Cataline and refused to concede the Federalist vote for him in spite of his wooing of them. Jefferson he considered far less dangerous because he was “a temporizing man” who could be worked with.

It was his political opposition to Burr which cost him his life, a life totally devoted to the creation and preservation of the Union.
